From the Author:

An Eye For Murder was a personal journey for me. Not so much because it was the first Ellie Foreman mystery, but because of its backstory which involves my late mother and father in law.

My husband's parents were "off the boat" from Germany-- his mother, Lucy, in 1938, his father, Fred, in 1939. His mother cleaned houses in New York while she learned English. She used to tell us how she scrubbed Danny Kaye's floors.

Fred, the sole survivor of his family, was drafted six months after he arrived in the US. But instead of going to boot camp, he was shipped up to Canada where he trained with William Stephenson (A Man Called Intrepid) who, as many of you know, was one of the founders of the OSS. Then Fred was sent back behind German lines to do intelligence work for the Allies. He came home in 1945.

Their story was so remarkable I knew I had to write about it. I hope you enjoy the result.
